THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE BIRTHDAY CAKE

Chugga Chugga! Chew-Chew!

Thomas the Tank Engine Cake

My little boy, like millions of others, loves Thomas! So for his birthday, mommy attempted to make him a Thomas cake.

It was my first time making a 3D cake and using fondant. I was quite proud of the results of my amateur efforts! It wasn’t perfect, but it resembled Thomas and saved me a lot of money. I also think homemade birthday cakes have more heart :)

Thomas’s face was made of fondant. I learned this on Youtube here:

The cake was a dense, white cake recipe, found here:

The icing recipe was a thick, decorator’s buttercream, found here:

The cake pan was the Wilton 3D Train Cake pan.

The wheels were good, old-fashioned Oreos :)

My son loved his cake! His smile was worth the hours of effort :)

Recipe: Pink Marshmallow Pops

marshmallows topped with pink frosting and white sprinkles on sticks

I made these adorable marshmallow pops for my daughter’s first birthday tea par-tea! Just marshmallows, melted pink chocolate and sprinkles! The perfect tea time treat for little ones to eat!

Would be so cute in pink & baby blue for a baby shower…or all white for a wedding…or lilac for Mother’s Day…the possibilities are endless and the result is delicious!
